Shirt // Pants // Tote // Flats (similar here & here) // Necklace (a sentimental J.Crew favorite!)

Believe it or not, it was warm enough to wear this outfit yesterday. The high was in the 70s! Today has been a different story… we’re barely pushing 40 for our high. Only in Oklahoma, I tell ya!

Ben and I got to celebrate our 2 year anniversary this past weekend, and it was a glorious 3 day staycation. Yesterday was our official anniversary, but we had fun celebrating all weekend long. It’s rare that Ben gets a day off, so I didn’t take that for granted.

Marriage is an amazing thing. I think it’s an incredible refinery for the soul. It’s exhilarating and exhausting, all at the same time. You’re pushed but also encouraged. Tested and affirmed. It’s definitely purifying and I don’t know how anyone does it without God. But I believe that no matter your faith, you would agree that marriage is both incredibly wonderful and incredibly hard. It’s definitely a blessing and I had the best time celebrating with my best friend and partner in all things!

A couple of quick notes about this look:

1) I wore this necklace at my wedding. It’s my favorite and well worth the money. It goes with everything.

2) Old Navy is having a huge sale — up to 50% off everything! This tee was 10% off. And today only: $12 women’s cardigans!

I hope you all have an absolutely lovely day and that you find a moment this week to unplug from your work email, your phone, your Instagram feed, whatever it may be, and truly just take in the moment to stop. Whoever means the most to you, take a moment to express how much they mean to you and just engage. Engage with each other and let the busy-ness and demands of this world wait. They can hold for a minute!

xoxo,

Emily
